 At our meeting today the speaker will be Mr Alan Coxan

 His subject “My experiences as a Toastmaster”.

 Friday 24th August will be our AGM and following this we will be

 Entertained by Mr Peter Hartley his subject ‘ A ROYAL INTERLUDE ?


 Eleven of us set out on a lovely sunny day through the countryside on

 an amble to Leeds Castle, known as the loveliest castle in England


 Day trip to Eastbourne.

 Leaving Barming on a light cloudy morning we made an extended

 journey to Eastbourne arriving about lunchtime to find a sunny skies

 and a nice sea breeze. We deboarded the coach at the Pier with

 instructions to return at 3pm. Everyone then went off to do their own

 thing, swimming, paddling, but mostly having lunch or drinks, walking

 along the prom or sitting chatting as we do. At 3pm we boarded the

 coach and went on to Barngate Manor for a lovely cream tea. A good

 journey home. A very good day. Thankyou Mo. 


The Committee are looking for members to help with some of the activities

of the club with a view to taking over completely in the future. The areas

of concern are “Day Trips”, and more importantly” Speakers”.

Anyone interested contact the Chairman.
